A head of cabbage seems like it never ends. Here's a delicious way to use it up. My husband is this stew's biggest fan. —Pamela Kennemer, Sand Springs, Oklahoma

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) petite diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium head cabbage (about 2 pounds), cut into 1-1/2-inch pieces
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Hot cooked rice and chopped fresh parsley, optional

Directions

Mix first nine ingredients. Place cabbage in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker;
In a large skillet, cook and crumble beef and sausage with onion and garlic over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 7-9 minutes; drain. Spoon over cabbage; top with tomato mixture.
Cook, covered, on low until cabbage is tender and flavors are blended, 5-6 hours. If desired, serve with rice and sprinkle with parsley.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled meat mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally.
Yield: 8 servings (3 quarts)


Test Kitchen Tips
  • Using a combination of ground beef and Italian sausage gives this recipe a flavor boost. (And it's a great idea for perking up most ground beef meals.)
  • The Cajun seasoning adds subtle flavor, but there's not enough to make this a real Cajun dish.
  • Health Tip: Cabbage is a low-calorie food that really bulks up this stew. A generous 1-1/2 cups is less than 200 calories.

    "We made this at work for our cafeteria as part of a smart pick option for the staff. We omitted the salt to reduce the sodium to fit the criteria. Our customers and staff loved it. Very hearty."

    "If you like stuffed cabbage but don't like the tedious work involved .... this is the recipe for you! VERY easy to make and when served with rice... tastes just like my mother's stuffed cabbage rolls. I changed a few things to fit what I had on hand: I used 1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes (instead of 2 14.5 ounce cans), 1 14 ounce can of tomato sauce (instead of 1 8 ounce can), I used 1/2 teaspoon of smoked black pepper (instead of Cajun seasoning), 2 pound ground beef (instead of beef and sausage) and used 2 tablespoons of dried sliced onion (instead of 1 medium onion, chopped). This recipe will surely go into my frequently used recipe rotation, 5 stars for sure!"

    "Delicious recipe! I added some caraway seed because we like that with cabbage. We had it with noodles."
